Teams rarely use their best offensive playmakers on special teams, thinking the possibility of a big play is outweighed by the risk of injury. But the Dolphins may use their top two wide receivers and starting running backs as returners this year.
The Dolphins’ official depth chart lists Tyreek Hill as a starting receiver and the No. 1 punt returner, Raheem Mostert as a starting running back and the No. 1 kickoff returner, and Jaylen Waddle as a starting receiver and the No. 2 returner of both punts and kickoffs.
